PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation's health and nutrition business has unveiled its new Aquateric N100 enteric coating solution, a new alginate-based product that simplifies processing for manufacturers and brand owners, and improves the sensory experience for consumers.

Aquateric N100 enteric coating works by protecting the capsule while in the acidic environment of the stomach, keeping it intact until further along in the digestive process where it releases the active ingredient at low acidic conditions. FMC, in partnership with customers, has been successfully beta testing Aquateric N100 enteric coating for the past year.

"Aquateric N100 enteric coating is the newest addition to our nutraceutical portfolio. It is a non-GMO enteric coating solution, and the first ever 'clean label' option in the marketplace. This innovative solution not only simplifies the enteric coating manufacturing process, but it also improves efficacy and flexibility in applications ranging from Omega-3 to dietary supplements and botanicals," said Ravi Annavarapu, global product platform director, FMC health and nutrition. 

"FMC Health and Nutrition has a long history of delivering differentiated value to our customers through product innovation within our core alginates, microcrystalline cellulose, and nutraceutical platforms. Throughout 2017, we expect to introduce multiple new product innovations in key end markets that address evolving consumer trends,” said Eric Norris, president, FMC health and nutrition.
